 We had our back to school lunch on Saturday.  Lance had too much work so he couldn’t go with us, and the little boys, well, their behavior sucked all week so they stayed home as well. That was fine, it was just me and three of my favorite people having one last meal before school. […]

Watching your kids play together is a dream for any parent, I’m sure.  What I have loved watching is the creativity. I admit that for half a second my first thought was “who is going to clean up this mess.”  Thankfully, I kept my mouth shut and just ran for the camera. The best part […]

Squirt, good luck today.  I promise we won’t embarrass you while you are working.   I pray that you are this excited about all your jobs in life.  (Not to be negative, but I doubt it.)

It’s finals week for Squirt.  Which means lots of heavy sighs and complaints about how stupid finals are.  Oh what a lovely time in our household.  Squirt is an A/B student in the end.  During the middle, he kind of effs off which means he has to do well on his finals to get his […]

Did you know it is Teacher Appreciation Week?  I still can’t believe teachers get a week, but I suppose that complaint is getting old.  The irony of this week is that I, hater of Goose’s first grade teacher, was selected by his homeroom mother to take lunch and a gift card tomorrow.  Really?  Why me? […]

Kids and Purgatory

I talk a lot about Purgatory in my house.  As a Catholic I truly believe that when I die I will be making a stop in Purgatory.  I stress over and over to my children to pray constantly for my soul so I’m not stuck in Purgatory.  I tell them not to fall for sweet […]

Zip Lining with the Eldest Son

Squirt will be turning 16 next month, and Lance and I wanted to do something special with him to celebrate his birthday.  In a family our size, it’s not always easy to get time alone with us, so we decided on a day trip to Austin.  We left this morning under the premise of going […]

If I were doing ApeDonkey’s power ratings, I would have a lot in the bottom five…When you start the week with your orthodontist hanging up on you, your son’s favorite (for now) College basketball team playing so badly it goes down in the history books for worst performance in the NCAA championship game, things can […]

Is it embarrassing to admit that I am now keeping a notepad (a Snoopy one) in my purse to write down ideas I want to blog about?  Yes, I really do take notes on things I might want to write about later.  I seriously have no shame, but hey, this is my blog and basically […]

Snow Day

All week long we’ve been preparing for snow and ice. Today was the day and what a bust. No Snow. My poor kids have been talking about building a snowman all week. Now their play date has been cancelled because mom doesn’t drive on ice and they are stuck inside. Oh, to be like the […]
